Elisabeth Rohm was born April 28, 1973 in Dusseldorf,
Germany to German lawyer, Everhard Rohm and American mother, Lisa Loverde, a writer (they divorced when she was 8.) Elisabeth
attended Saint Andrew's - Sewanee school in Tennessee. "I really wanted to go to boarding school." she says. "I read A Separate
Peace, and The Cather in the Rye, and I had this fantasy of what it would be like." As a child she had dreams of becoming
a competitive equestrian. "From 5 to 11, I was training seriously. I had no life." Rohm began acting during her freshman year
at Sarah Lawrence College.
Elisabeth describes herself as ever evolving. " I'm
not a girly girl. I don't like to paint my nails. I don't want to be wooed. I ride horses and I'm strong. I've always related
to a lot of male characteristics, but now as I get older, I realize I'm also a woman and I want to be completely pampered
and treated as a princess."
After Graduation, she worked briefly as an agent's
assistant before landing a role on One Life to Live. Her recurring part on Angel lead her to a full-time job on TNT's drama,
Bull, playing Alison Jeffers, one of six young investment bankers who leave an established firm to start their own. About
preparing for her role on BULL Elisabeth said "I went to the trading floor at Merril and the anxiety was surreal. I was shaking
and wanted a drink. I saw somebody lose $9 million. He knew it was just a shitty day-what goes down, must come up. There was
this sense of cool, but utter terror."
One of Elisabeth's great passions is horse rideing.
When asked about the sexual aspect of horse riding. Elisabeth told FHM: " Even the clothes are suggestive. Once I was wearing
jeans and chaps from riding, and I showed up to work, and George Newbern, who's a friend and my co-star, was like. "Good God,
you might as well just put arrows saying, 'Right here!' because the opening are on your crotch and butt."
